About Sidewalk Serenades:

Creative Alliance believes that a Baltimore without live performances is a Baltimore without joy – and we won’t stand for that!

As you likely know, working musicians, dancers, magicians, burlesque performers, aerialists, and other performance-based artists have had their gigs and their livelihoods cancelled for the foreseeable future. Join Creative Alliance in creating performance opportunities for these artists throughout Baltimore while simultaneously respecting the need for everyone to keep a safe distance.

Beginning this week Creative Alliance will offer you the opportunity to have a short performance with two to three songs delivered to the front of your home (or a friend/loved one’s home) for a small fee.

Performers will come to the confirmed address, text the residence upon arrival and, like a burst of sunlight through these gray skies, share their talents from the sidewalk. The donations from each of these performance events will be shared between the artist and Creative Alliance to help keep the arts alive and thriving in Baltimore!

The Basics:

  • Performers will come to the front of your (or loved ones) home and will perform for 10-15 minutes.
  • Concerts will be scheduled on the hour, and you can purchase them at the Creative Alliance website.
  • Sales end when each slot is booked OR 8am day of the concerts.
  • If there is poor weather, concerts will be rescheduled to the next nice day

What if I want to purchase a concert for someone else??? 

  • Just leave the name, address, and cell number of the person the concert is for in the COMMENTS Section when you check out online, or, let us know if you want to purchase over the phone (M-F, 11am-5pm during shutdown)

What if I live in an apartment?

  • Performers will not enter an apartment or shared home but can perform in front of the complex.
